Big Pre-Fest in Little Ybor unveils schedule for Against Me!, Beach Slang, more

Against Me!

Against Me!



Ybor City's Big Pre-Fest in Little Ybor is coming back for a fifth year, and now, you can finally start planning your schedule.

The multi-venue punk gathering -- a pre-show of sorts for Gainesville's annual Fest -- is set to return Oct. 25 and 26, with headliners including Against Me!, Beach Slang, Smoking Popes, Teenage Bottlerocket, Tim Barry and Off With Their Heads. And the schedule just dropped, meaning you can start figuring out who to see and when.

As always, one ticket gets you in the door for every show (although expect Against Me!, who are performing at the Orpheum both nights, to be packed). Two-day passes are $70 and up -- although you can buy one-night, single-venue tickets at the door. Those prices are listed below.
